So I’m on this steampunk kick. And I had planned on a horse next. But then I saw this floppy-eared bunny in a pile of prints I ordered from deviantART.
Which led to:
Probably should have left the tilt of his head. Oh! I should mention the other piece of the puzzle – the whirligig, which happens to be the optional whimsy theme/prompt over at the Web of Whimsy, a neat monthly challenge I joined for the first time last month. I wanted to give the prompt a shot because I didn’t use it for the last one.
This drawing was much more troublesome than the llama, sheep and kangaroo. I didn’t really like most of the progression of this one. Not loving the color exactly. And eek, the swirlygig is crooked (I know, I should trace a circle. But I don’t like to use anything mechanical, generally. Which is silly. It’s steampunk, right?) Oh, and the whirlygig should have stayed black and white. But I like some things:
And then I thought hey, I can fix the swirl and maybe help out the color with a background, after I scan it. So I did. I tried a few background colors, mostly dark, as this rabbit is far too dressed up for the morning. Also, he tends to sleep in quite late most days and rarely ventures out before evening.
I think it’s a big improvement, though it could probably still use some work. Maybe a gradient background or some stars or something, it’s far too flat as is. But I must go to bed, alas! Let me know what you think! Be brutal. I can take it.
